Piracy / Intellectual Property and OzBargain

It seems the squeaky wheel gets the oil, with a couple of recent deals being removed due to issues. The first, the free condoms and now the retro arcade device.

My question is, why does OzBargain then allow Star Wars items that are clearly infringing on the intellectual property of Lucasfilm / Disney? I've seen the keyrings and bottle openers, and it's clear they're cheaply made and not official items.

So, OzBargain, perhaps a little more self-regulation is in order, instead of relying on users to click the report button?
